World's smallest magnifying glass

For centuries, scientists believed that light, like all waves, couldn't be focused down smaller than its wavelength, just under a millionth of a metre. Now, researchers led by the University of Cambridge have created the world's smallest magnifying glass.

Imaging technique maps serotonin activity in living brains

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that's partly responsible for feelings of happiness and for mood regulation in humans. This makes it a common target for antidepressants, which block serotonin from being reabsorbed by neurons after it has dispatched its signal, so more of it stays floating around the brain.

Material development for implants – for every application the right material

Special

Whether shortly after birth, after an accident or in old age – implants play an important role for people of every age. But before an implant can be applied, it has to pass through many processes. At the beginning, there is the choice of the material. Nitinol, titanium alloy, PEEK – these are only some of the possible materials. Read more about this in current special November.

Tiny gold particles could be the key to developing a treatment for pancreatic cancer

A diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is often a death sentence because chemotherapy and radiation have little impact on the disease. In the U.S. this year, some 53,000 new cases will be diagnosed, and 42,000 patients will die of the disease. But research now being reported in ACS Nano could eventually lead to a new type of treatment based on gold nanoparticles.

Implants require sufficient and permanent energy to function as desired. However, unlike a mobile phone or a camera, the size of the battery plays an important role in implants. Researchers are therefore looking for ways to deliver energy from outside.

Developing a sensor for vitamin B12 deficiency

University of Adelaide researchers have developed a world-first optical sensor that can detect vitamin B12 in diluted human blood - a first step towards a low-cost, portable, broadscale vitamin B12 deficiency test. Vitamin B12 deficiency is associated with an increased risk of dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

Study finds female scientists collaborate differently

Succeeding in the male-dominated science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines can be very challenging for female faculty. Now, a Northwestern University study of the collaboration patterns of STEM faculty has found that the playing fields in some disciplines are not as level as they first appear.

Stretchy optical fibers for implanting in the body

Researchers from MIT and Harvard Medical School have developed a biocompatible and highly stretchable optical fiber made from hydrogel — an elastic, rubbery material composed mostly of water. The fiber, which is as bendable as a rope of licorice, may one day be implanted in the body to deliver therapeutic pulses of light or light up at the first sign of disease.

3D printing: customized insoles for diabetes patients

In the past, insoles for patients with diabetes were hand-made by orthopedic shoemakers. In the future, these specialist shoemakers will be able to produce insoles more cost-effectively thanks to new software and the use of 3D printers. This approach means the mechanical properties of each insole can be assessed scientifically and more effectively.
